Words of Encouragement

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

Tomorrow morning bright and early we are heading to Finger Lakes (somewhere in New York State) for Mike's race this weekend. Lots of hours of training and preparation have gone into this weekend...I am really excited for Mike - and I know that he is totally going to rock it (and let's be honest...become addicted to this racing So in honour of his impending race this weekend I thought I would share some encouraging signs that have been seen along triathlon race courses. (and a few other funnies I thought I'd throw in)

Don't forget to take them out BEFORE you cross the finish line...




Totally normal right....?!?


Oh can totally follow it up with this


Oh the life of training


Why is it that we runners have such a hate for this word....




Best part of racing triathlons...our markings


These days...this feels more my speed

    My favourite sign ever was at last year's Toronto Marathon:
    "You're running a marathon??? Our mayor wants your crack!!!"
